As more details emerge about Arizona psycho shooter Jared Loughner, the story becomes more and more creepy. Apparently, Police have found papers at the Loughner’s home that leads them to believe that this shooting was not a random act of violence.
He had her in his cross hairs for years.
The crackpot gunman charged in the frenzied ambush of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords on Saturday had stashed handwritten messages in his basement safe bearing the chilling words: “Gifford,” “My assassination” and “I planned ahead,” authorities said yesterday.
Accused killer Jared Lee Loughner, 22, signed at least one of the pieces of paper, which he put in a single envelope and placed in the safe at his parents’ modest one-story home in the northwest section of the city, according to charges filed yesterday in federal court in Phoenix.
Also inside the safe was a letter on Giffords’ congressional stationery thanking Loughner for attending one of her “Congress on your Corner” events at a mall in Tucson in 2007.
Loughner had asked Giffords at the event, “What is government if words have no meaning?” according to two friends from high school.
It’s kind of hard to believe that this kids parents didn’t recognize that their son was a fawking lunatic, or at LEAST keep and eye on him. His college professors did…
He soon enrolled at Pima Community College, where his wacko behavior immediately alarmed students and professors.
Pima officials said in a statement that from February to September 2010, campus cops were called on Loughner five times because of classroom and library disruptions.
He was suspended after college police discovered a YouTube video in which Loughner claimed the college was “illegal.”
Along with the suspension came a terse letter to Loughner’s parents stating if he wanted to come back, he’d have to “obtain a mental-health clearance” from a professional,” the school said. Loughner dropped out instead.
Pima math teacher Ben McGahee said Loughner worried him.
“I always felt, you know, somewhat paranoid,” McGahee told The Washington Post. “When I turned my back to write on the board, I would always turn back quickly — to see if he had a gun.”
An older student in the class, Lynda Sorenson, 52, was scared stiff of the lunatic. She wrote e-mails — provided to The Washington Post — alluding to Loughner’s antics.
“He scares me a bit . . . Hopefully he will be out of class very soon, and not come back with an automatic weapon,” she wrote on June 1, the first day of class.
So everybody knew Loughner was scared sh*tless of him and yet his parents were living with him and never thought “Hey our son, might need to lay on a doctors couch.” Hope the authorities are looking into them too, something ain’t right about this…

This is one of the saddest, bizzare, and craziest stories we’ve ever seen!
A murdered Filipino politician caught his killer on camera just moments before he was shot dead, and the photograph led to the arrest of the gunman, police said today.
The photograph, taken by district councilor Reynaldo Dagsa and reprinted on the front page of a major newspaper, shows his family posing for the photo while the gunman is in the background aiming a pistol at his victim.
“While he was taking the picture of his family on New Year’s Day, the killer appeared, and he inadvertently took the picture of the killer with the gun aimed at him,” said local police chief Jude Santos.
Dagsa, a councilor in a Manila suburb, was shot moments after the picture was taken and died on the way to the hospital, according to Santos. The family gave the photograph to the police, which led to the arrest of the gunman Monday as well as a suspected accomplice who was also seen lurking in the background of the picture, Santos added.
R.I.P. to Councilor Dagsa, but we have to say his timing was impeccable, and the picture was not taken in vain. We’re glad the police caught the shooter, homie had some real cajones to shoot a guy thats holding a camera in his general direction.

A 10-year-old boy is in juvenile custody after telling a neighbor that he had shot and killed his mother, an Ohio sheriff said Monday.
Deborah McVay, 46, was found dead of a single gunshot wound to the head Sunday night in Big Prairie, located about midway between Cleveland and Columbus, said Holmes County Sheriff Tim Zimmerly. Paramedics found McVay lying facedown on her living room floor, and she was pronounced dead at the scene, Zimmerly said.
Authorities went to the home after a neighbor called a sheriff’s dispatcher to say McVay’s son had come to her home and said he had just shot his mother.
McVay’s body was transported to the Stark County Coroner’s office for an autopsy. The sheriff said McVay’s 15-year-old daughter is currently staying with relatives. It is unclear whether she witnessed the shooting.
The 10-year-old boy is being held in Richland County Juvenile Detention and will appear in court Monday afternoon. A woman who answered the phone at McVay’s home said she had no comment and hung up.
Authorities are investigating what may have caused the shooting.
Its sad as hell that this tragedy has ruined 2 lives. One day this little boy is going to regret killing his mother in the worst way, and by that time it will probably be WAY too late. SMH
